5 Ways To Add New Style To Your Kitchen

Feb 13, 2019

It’s been said that your kitchen is the heart of your home. This means that your kitchen is probably the first place in your home to start showing wear and tear - at some point, it’ll be time for an update!

This can seem like a daunting task if you don’t know where to start. Not to mention, a full kitchen renovation could quickly become expensive.

Ready for the good news?

There are ways to start updating your kitchen (and adding some style!) without breaking the bank.

Repainting Kitchen Cabinets

Your kitchen cabinets receive an enormous amount of use. When you installed them, they were probably the hilt of fashion. Or, perhaps you moved into a home that had well made, but older styled cabinets. Although you can replace your cabinets, repainting them is a quicker, cheaper alternative.

Some of the benefits of repainting your kitchen cabinets include:

  • Faster Process - Painting your kitchen cabinets is much quicker than replacing them
  • More Opportunity for Customization - Pick and choose your colors and finishes
  • Cost-Effective - Repainting your cabinets costs a fraction of the cost to replace them
  • Convenience - A complete replace will completely disrupt the flow of your home

If your kitchen cabinets need a refresher, explore the affordable option to repaint!


Go bold with your island

A popular new trend is to paint your island an accent color. This will add a fun change to the monotony of a single colored cabinet scheme, without overwhelming the entire style of the kitchen.

White cabinets have made a strong comeback in recent years, and a color like Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay, would make a wonderful focal color for your island.

Two tone kitchen cabinets

While you are considering repainting your cabinets, explore the recent trend of mixing up the colors. Two tone cabinets add visual interest and, like the color accented kitchen island, can create a focal point in the space.

Two tone kitchen cabinets can be used to define your space as well. For instance, a darker color on the top half of your cabinets gives a cozier feel to the room. Darker cabinets on the bottom are also a popular choice.

Accent walls

Accent walls define the space in your kitchen. They are an awesome way to add an exciting pop of color without overwhelming the space. In addition, the accent color can be used to unify other rooms in your home.

Consequently, an accent wall can be a great creative outlet. Try chalkboard paint for a dramatic, but useful look!

Spice up your backsplash

Backsplashes are useful, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! Older kitchens may already have brick backsplashes. Did you know that brick can be painted? Why not choose a fresh color that will open the space.

There are many options for backsplashes. Some are more practical, and some are geared towards adding visual interest. Choose a material that will hold up to heavy use over time, but also fits the feel of your updated kitchen.

Looking towards the future

Not only are these affordable updates that you can make to your home, they also add resale value. Keeping your kitchen up to date and stylish is not only an asset to yourself, it is also an investment for the future.
